What is a PAFP Foundation SAM Study Group?

Physicians who have entered the ABFM Maintenance of Certification cycle come together to complete the knowledge assessment section for the MC-FP SAM requirement. Facilitated by expert faculty, this group works through the 60 core competency questions assessing, reviewing, and deciding as a group the best answer.

After completing the session, PAFP staff report your answers to the ABFM and you are guaranteed a passing grade. No computer entry by you is needed.

What do I have to do after attending a SAM Study Group to finish the Self Assessment Module (Part ll)?

Your next step is to go to the ABFM Web site, pay the necessary fees, and complete the clinical simulation section. The clinical simulation section presents patient care scenarios corresponding to the topic module. Now you have completed Part ll of the MC-FP.

How do I earn CME?

Twelve (12) CME credits are awarded for successfully completing each Part II Module. 12 credits will be automatically posted to your AAFP account upon completion of the module.
